chaos in my head in my mind they told me my dad is gone. chaos in my mind I don’t know if I know he’s not coming back
things I wish I knew before getting married
It's been about a year since I said 'I do' . At least I think I've said that, honestly I don't remember saying that. It was a crazy day and I feel like I blacked out for that part. Not because I was drunk or anything... just because it was really weird. Standing there, having people watch you and trying to focus on that one guy but also looking around and thinking "how do people look so in love while doing this?". It was weird, that's all.
What do you do when your dad dies?
This morning I woke up to a message from my brother asking me to call him and not to contact mum first. I knew something was wrong but I figured maybe they had one of their fights as sometimes they do or maybe something happened to grandma. What I could never expect was my brother saying that my dad wasn’t with us anymore.
Fostering Saves Lives
Take it from a person who currently has got two medium sized dogs and a cat in her studio apartment... having pets is a huge responsibility. It's hard work, sometimes it gets expensive and super stressful. It's the best thing that has ever happened to me but it has also cost me great sacrifices. But all that doesn't matter at all because when I look at my 3 perfect fur babies, the only feeling I have is overflowing unconditional love.
Green Card Marriage
It's been almost 12 months since I started my Green Card process. Well, actually it's been way longer than that but officially, after collecting all the documents for about 5 months, my husband and I applied in May last year. There are so many appalling things regarding this whole process that it's really hard to know where to start. So let's begin with the fact that you read it right, it was my husband and I applying, not just me. While my husband is American, born and raised in Virginia, I am an immigrant. Once we got married a bit over a year ago I had to apply for a Green Card in order to live with him in the same country. As you might think, how could anyone refuse me living with my husband? Well, the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) most certainly can. Not only that but for me to stay in the same country as my loved one, he needs to become my 'sponsor' and prove that he can 'afford' me living here.
I used to have 5 Pets in a Studio Apartment
We all make crazy purchases because of the targeted ads on our social media feeds. New dress, unnecessary home décor or even plane tickets to an exotic country just because we miss the beach. Been there, done that!
The Timeline of my Womanhood
The first time I was accused of not being ladylike, I was 7. The accusation was made by one of my female teachers based on a top I was wearing. It exposed my shoulders and a bit of my back. She said trying to look ‘sexy’ was inappropriate for my age. I had no idea what she meant.
